If direct questions around trauma are asked too early, it can scare your clients away or paralyze them with anxiety. To prevent this common problem, the Family Systems Trauma Model (FST) uses a “stress chart." Instead of traditional questions, such as “What is the problem?,” the “stress chart” disrupts this pattern by asking everyone to assess their home stress life.

This technique slows down or bypasses the normal conflict and confrontation. It also allows the trauma specialist to ask their client’s to breakdown their percentage into the top three stressors or problem symptoms. This key information will then allow the trauma therapist to quickly diagnosis and assess their clients key pain points even with the most complex trauma cases.

In this webinar, participants will learn how to:

• Ask and apply key transition question, “Would you agree all families, individuals, or couples have stress?” to set-up the FST Stress Chart technique.
• Use the Stress Chart to quickly disarm the most agitated or resistant clients.
• Obtain an overall stress rating from the individual, couple, family, or extended family participant.
• Convert client’s overall stress into top three problems.
• Locate safety stressors (i.e., self-harm, family secrets, technology addition, substance abuse, bullying, suicidal ideation, etc.) that clients might not otherwise reveal on their own.
• Use this technique to accurately diagnosis and assess your most complex trauma cases using video excepts from real cases.

Live Q & A with the instructors will be encouraged
